appointed erskine bowles to represent him in negotiations with congress. bowls, great talents of such bargaining, was important in reaching the president's legislative agenda. but this is followed by the same house of representatives voting to impeach bill clinton. obviously an extreme example of the age-old conflict between congress and the executive branch of government. and yet, bill clinton is listed among only seven reelected presidents who were successful. there are lessons to be learned from the clinton second term that might offer guidance to obama, were he reelected. some of the presidency face hostilities from congress filled with majority of their own party, included washington, jefferson, monroe, grant, theodore roosevelt, johnson and bush. andrew jackson was censored by a congress controlled by his own democratic party. a fight he never forgave. franklin roosevelt had a constant battle with southern democrats in congress who oppose his new deal legislation. he suffered his greatest political defeat as a democratic-controlled congress refused to support his plan to

administration erskine bowles. he was the co-sponsor of the so-called simpson/bowles plan to deal with debt relief. >> look, we shouldn't negotiate on the full faith and credit of the u.s. government. that is crazy. why would we want to put our u economy through that. we do have a sequester. we do have the end of a continuing resolution. we have lots of things coming up that will force us to make some of these tough decisions. the reality, wolf, is that what we have to do is make some of these tough decisions instead of talking about them. we do have to reform the tax code, broaden the base, simplify the code, reduce some of that back-door spending. we have to cut some of these entitlement programs in order to make social security sustain blee solvent. if we don't face up to these long-term problems and if we don't fix them and fix them soon, we're going to put our whole fiscal house in jeopardy. >> the full interview will air, by the way, in the next hour. >>> joining us now to talk more about this historic day in washington is our chief political analyst gloria borger. the speaker of th
